When you get to be 74 you have a lot of history.

Also, pix of TLX = great looking interior.
The TLX is no longer in the stable. That's the interior of the Z....In 2013 approx. 341 were built...

I too never rode in an S2000 and can't remember ever sitting in one, or touching one, or seeing up one up close before buying a super low miles bone stock 2001 AP1 long distance, over 2000 miles out. We flew from Wisconsin to Portland and drove it back through OR, WA, ID, MT, ND, MN and WI for our 30th anniversary trip. I did much research and read up on them like crazy before and when they came out in the late 90's. I knew all about them and have had nothing but Honda cars,vans, SUV's, have 8 Honda motorcycles (collect old XL dual sports and scooters), and nearly every other product they make as well. I had little doubt what I was getting and I got exactly what I thought it would be. I suspect there are a lot of guys like me who get to an age and say "I am getting an S2000 no matter what, don't care what it costs or where it is, when the right one pops up I am getting it". I wanted a silverstone/black AP1(for the sweet sounding iconic 9000rpm red line) and that's what I found, no compromising, could care less what other colors were worth more or handled better at the fringes.


I planned on getting one for about 20 years, was looking for an adventure with a wife that wanted it as much as me. We got it at the start of summer and smile every day, love it. We got it to enjoy long term, nothing but a weekend cruiser on the beautiful days on the winding roads along Lake Michigan where we live. Of all things I like the most about it is riding in it while my wife tops 8000 rpm's with a smile on her face making a weeeee sound as she shifts into second and third.
